i did a simple & delectable prawn tofu dish for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 2.6.2017. ^^

this my 35th friday breakfast community meal at teban gardens community service centre.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

it’s a easy dish to put together. and the end result was pretty & delectable.

however for a group of >100 residents (i was told the highest a few weeks ago was 126), i planned to do 10 tubes of egg tofu cut into 8 coin pieces=80 pieces altogether.

it would be too tedious to shallow fry, so i deepfried the egg tofu.

so i had to wake up at 6am to prepare the tofu. took maybe 20mins+ so i had time to let the tofu drained away the oil on kitchen towels.

1 kg shelled small prawns

one consideration in planning the dish for the residents = i usually do chicken & dory fish fillet & belly pork/collar as these have no bones or very few for the dory fillet.

of course belly pork/collar not so healthy. chicken i debone so it is quite hard work.

this the first time i try prawns. it is too difficult to shell prawns or ask my helper to do, so i ordered 1 kg IQF (individually quick freeze) small prawns from QBFood.

after defrosting & draining overnight (kept in fridge), i seasoned with fish sauce & white pepper.

deepfried egg tofu

i had done both deep & shallow fried egg tofu, so not much problem there.

& they looked so pleasing to the senses.

just fry cut red onions, chilli, sliced ginger in oil high heat, then add chopped garlic.

after that off fire & add in chicken stock, bring to boil & crack 3 eggs, then “draw” with chopstick to spread the eggs.

i did not want to overcook the prawns, so added tofu & then prawns & covered for few minutes.

added oysters sauce to taste.

then i mixed in the chopped spring onions.

as a finale, i topped with cut spring onions & several twigs of coriander. voila!

i tried some prawns & tofu. just the right texture, and tofu was infused with the stock, very very tasty dish la…
